Stomach Cancer

Stomach Cancer

Stomach cancer often begins in the cells that line the abdominal wall. As the disease grows, stomach function steadily decreases. Over time, you may experience symptoms such as bloating, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, indigestion, stomach pain, loss of appetite or unexplained weight loss.

Because these symptoms can indicate other problems, talk with your doctor and ask for a referral to the stomach cancer specialists at OU Health Stephenson Cancer Center in Oklahoma City.
